Reviews

Reviewer: Daniel Russell - - December 2, 2014
Subject: Why in French?
I do not understand French speech. Is this a propaganda film for French Nazi sympathizers? Or a tool to brainwash the French people?
Reviewer: Hambro - - April 12, 2014
Subject: World famous writer Knut Hamsun appears on the film!
The person in the very end of the film reel who is described in the caption as a possible Uboat inventor is in fact the Norwegian author Knut Hamsun, who was an admirer of Hitler. Also seen in the film in an sequence with Hitler is Fegerlein, who married Eva Brauns sister, he was shot on Hitlers orders.
